FRENCH LANGUAGE

An atypical personality, Léopold Chauveau (1870-1940), parallel to his activity as a doctor embraced by family obligation, took refuge very early on in a strange artistic universe, as singular as it was original.
A sculptor, illustrator and author of books for adults and children, he was long forgotten by art history, before a donation from his grandson to the Musée d'Orsay in 2017 brought his name back into the limelight.
He began sculpting around 1905 and soon monsters became a leitmotif of his production, in both sculpture and drawing.
